Topshop Unique SS15 serves a sea-sprayed celebration of British youth culture at its best
For Topshop Unique SS15 traditional sportswear was re-imagined with an ultra-feminine aesthetic, with a splash of traditional British seaside heritage thrown in. The tom-boy was dressed in frilly knickers and girly-girls adopted bold cycling jerseys teamed with contrasting accordion pleats, ruffles or delicate layers.
Quintessentially British, but with a lively twist, Topshop Unique SS15 was made for the city girl heading on a mini-break wanting to take the faded glamour of the British seaside to the med. From bowling totes, tambourine bags and Brighton rock bangles to reinvented houndstooth, bold primary colours, spaghetti strap dresses, silver foil pleats, cobalt and lemon prints and chic navy stripes – the collection served up a day to night wardrobe we can’t wait to get our hands on. Stand out pieces came in the shape of a sherbet lemon off the shoulder frill hemmed two piece and the Swarovski crystal embellished nude dress worn by a fierce looking Cara Delevingne.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Topshop Unique show without a killer soundtrack, from a remix of Joe Goddard’s ‘Time’ to Marylin’s classic ‘Tainted Love’ – SS15 served a celebration of British youth culture at its best.
